Kenneth Roy Regan served in the RAF as a wireless operator in 59 Squadron during the Second World War (based for a long time in Northern Ireland), and this booklet provides a fascinating record of his wartime activities, as well as tracing other important moments and events in his life...
This booklet was written by Kenneth's son, and in the introduction he writes: This is the story of Kenneth's life. Not the whole story, but parts of it, as recalled by those who knew him and supplemented by alot of research on his proud seven years of service with the RAF. Titch enlisted in the autumn of 1940 and saw hectic service as a wireless operator on numerous coastal command flights out over the Atlantic. He stayed on in service after the Second World War and the highlight of an extraordinary second career that took him around the world many times was his vital part in a world record shattering flight to New Zealand and back in 1946. The booklet is illustrated throughout with lots of black and white photographs, and sections include:
- Active Service
- Monty's Story (Monty was the nickname of his wife)
- After the war was over
- Three appendices, including The Battle of the Atlantic, Johnny Adams DFC AFC, and Michael Evans
Condition of the booklet is generally good. The cover has some minor scuffs and blemishes, and some light nibbling and wear along the edges and corners, but the staple spine intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
